UFC Quick Quote: Diego Sanchez on move to lightweight

Diego Sanchez UFC

"I feel that he beat me fair and square. I was close, but close isn't close enough. All fighters go through losses, I'm just going to have to come back stronger. I'm contemplating in my mind if I'm going to drop to (1)55 or not, because I'm a smaller welterweight. I could do more powerlifting and put some more weight on or I could lose some weight."

-- UFC welterweight Diego Sanchez (via Yahoo!Sports) talks about moving down to the lightweight division (155 pounds) after his split decision loss to Jon Fitch at UFC 76: "Knockout" on September 22. It is the second consecutive loss for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season one middleweight winner.
